Our Mother, Joan Karlyon (Davis) Moore, was born on September 13th, 1949, in Dayton, Ohio. The 13th child of Howard and Edith Davis. Mom lost her beloved mother at the tender age of 3, but despite this tragedy, or because of it, she became an amazing and attentive mother to the four of us, Timothy, Tamara, Teresa and Tina. She also dedicated 28 years to a job she loved, working with children for Clay County Schools. We lost our father, Trellis Moore, the day after their 51st wedding anniversary, 5 years ago.
Earlier this year she experienced the worst thing that could happen to a parent, the loss of a child, our precious sister, Teresa. Although she will be deeply missed by those of us left behind, we are comforted that she will now be surrounded by all those who have been awaiting her arrival in heaven
